Are you an engaging individual who can help us to improve cancer outcomes and save more lives? ​

Cancer Research UK, Transforming Cancer Services London and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are partnering to improve the prevention and earlier diagnosis of cancer. Primary Care professionals, especially GPs and their practice teams, have a crucial role to play in early diagnosis- but we know this is a complex area. We are also engaging with a range of Healthcare Professionals across the cancer pathway through our programme of Health Professional Engagement, to raise the profile of cancer, identify activities to improve uptake of bowel screening and cancer outcomes more generally and make change happen at a local level.

It's a hugely exciting time to join the Health Professional Engagement Facilitation Team at Cancer Research UK, who are a key accelerator in driving forward our ambitious new Cancer Research UK organisational strategy.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for Heath Professional Engagement Facilitator to join our South and North West London team to ...
  • Build effective relationships with and actively engage all GP practices within the locality to raise the awareness of the importance of early detection and screening
  • Work closely with GP Practices to encourage the effective use of GP Practice data and undertake interventions that support the earlier detection of cancer
  • Develop, plan and co-ordinate learning events for primary care professionals
  • Lead and co-ordinate practice improvement projects
  • Work closely with health professionals from primary & secondary care organisations to effect improvements in communication, service delivery and patient experience across the cancer pathway

To join us, we're looking for a self-motivated individual with...
  • Experience of working with CCGs, GPs and practice staff
  • The ability to communicate with and influence clinical and non-clinical staff
  • An understanding of the changing NHS environment: GP practices, CCGS, ICSs, STPs and Cancer Alliances
  • Outstanding communication and interpersonal skills
  • Excellent organisational and project management skills

As the role is predominantly field based, you'll also need to be a self-starter, have tenacity and be comfortable working on your own as well as part of a team.

If this describes you, join our team as we work hard to beat cancer sooner. For full role details, please see our candidate pack at our website via the button below.
